Hello, pankaj!

How does one create gap between two words in latex?

In LaTeX, if you type: God is now here, it comes out: $\displaystyle God is now here$

You might use: \text{God is now here} . . . and get: $\displaystyle \text{God is now here}$

If youinsert spaces, you can use a variety of commands.__must__

A\,B . . . $\displaystyle A\,B$

A\:B . . . $\displaystyle A\:B$

A\;B . . . $\displaystyle A\;B$

A\ B . . . $\displaystyle A\ B$

A~B . . . $\displaystyle A~B$

A\quad B . . .$\displaystyle A\quad B$

A\qquad B . . $\displaystyle A\qquad B$

Not quite, in LaTeX "Dog is now here" displays exactly as that, the problem is that the [tex][/tex] tags put you in math mode, which would normally be between $ delimiters (or other delimiters for display mode etc) in LaTeX. In math mode you have to put in your own spaces.
